Day 16: Let Go


LOSS is part of LIFE,

but so is MORE,

for when JESUS enters into the LOSS

the LOSS dissipates

as the PEACE OF JESUS

overwhelms your SOUL

that you forget about the LOSS.

Because you PRAY about the LOSS

and you GRIEVE about the LOSS

to JESUS

who is ALWAYS MORE than what is LOSS.

I have LOST much, yet

I have GAINED much.

How about you?

Is there a LOSS on your heart that is beating so loudly

that you can't even imagine ever

being at PEACE as long as the LOSS is happening in your life?

Oh I hear the BEAT, BEAT, BEAT

of LOSS,

yet I experience the

BEAT, BEAT, BEAT

of

HIS PEACE

HIS JOY

HIS LOVE

when I

FAST from LOSS

by

bringing my HEART to the ONE who

"HEALS the BROKENHEARTED" (Psalm 147:3).

But it takes a step of

BELIEVING FAITH

that BELIEVES JESUS will fill the

LOSS HOLES in your heart.

because

ONLY JESUS

can fill those empty spaces & places of your HEART.

But oh when I hit the brick wall of DOUBT,

when I don't BELIEVE that

my HEART would ever start

BEATING

PEACE

JOY

&

LOVE,

that is when

I have a choice.

to either

stay in the UNBELIEF

or go to JESUS

bringing my UNBELIEF,

like the father with the sick son in the BIBLE

who had BELIEVING UNBELIEF.

For he approached JESUS with the Spirit of DOUBT~

"But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us”*

But oh how JESUS never misses a word

because HE is the ultimate

LISTENER~

“‘If you can’?” said JESUS. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”*

Did JESUS yell at the man?

Did JESUS just walk away and forget the man's request?

Did JESUS condemn the man?

Oh no.

For JESUS is a gentleman of

COMPASSION, EMPATHY, GRACE, & MERCY.

Oh the power of the WORDS from JESUS

when you have a conversation with HIM.

When you CHOOSE to go to HIM

with your hurts,

your questions

and even your DOUBTS.

For that is when JESUS leans into your HEART

so that you can't stop wanting

MORE of HIM

and wanting to BELIEVE HIM~

"Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe;

help me overcome my unbelief!”

(Mark 9).

Oh sweet JESUS stays with you

in what you are FEELING

in what you are BELIEVING

and even when you QUESTION whether JESUS can.

Or is it a QUESTION if

JESUS WILL do what you are asking HIM to do,

Oh how HE gets to your heart when you give HIM all your heart.

Without condemnation.

Without walking away.

JESUS leans in and listens to hear your heart

so HE can take you from broken feelings to Beautiful!

The word BELIEVE means TRUST.

To put your FAITH IN JESUS.

And once you trust in JESUS your prayer is already answered.

So what if the ANSWER is your just TALKING to JESUS

and that is THE MORE in the LOSS?

Think about it.

A RELATIONSHIP with JESUS is always

MORE in

the

LOSS of BROKEN RELATIONSHIPS.

It is hard to BELIEVE when your HEART is at a LOSS,

but that is when you

FAST from LOSS

by going to the ONE who gives you MORE despite the LOSS.

So let's FAST from LOSS today,

and talk to JESUS about it instead of allowing it to marinate

on your HEART.

Whatever LOSS you may have on your HEART

INVITE JESUS into it

because HE is the

"GOD OF POSSIBLE" (listen to the song below)
